What drivel is this person ("Deterritory") himself spouting!  I guess we are
all protected by the first ammendment.

> Grave as the metaphor of the critical drivel that has accumulated around
his work since his death. At first it was good, then it became manure shite
repetition, what was curiosity becomes the reflexive self preservation of a
class prejudice.
>
> In a Deleuze like pose one ca ask who does Milton take behind. MIlton the
Latin Secretary of Cromwell, Milton the mysogyne. Latin the blind man on the
run Milton is the class  poet of his age: what a bore, as one drills through
the last bks. Always so derivative everywhere of Shakespeare, this religious
maniiac, a man who neglects the Irish and exaltsthe Bible one strange
cocatoo of british nonsense One can go on and on....
> Tracking this and tracing this...
> yet the grave becomes the visible site and is indeed the visible localae
of violation. THe poets remains were stolen,removed, desecrated, put back;
Milton's dead body is the dead subject of his reified name. His fit fame for
few is a curse. He remains, like TS Eliot, the most cursed of the British
poet.s

that the Waste Land began with this lengthy burial of Christianity, its last
aborted effort at justifying of course a god that cannot be justified.
